Reviewed creamy mashed potatoes

Saturday 2 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

I'm not usually one to comment on a recipe if I haven't made it as written. However, having learned what I've learned from watching FN, I feel as though it's important to comment on the seasoning in this recipe.
First, FN has taught me to start cooking potatoes in COLD, SALTED water. I'm not using caps for anger, merely for emphasis. This...

To Cmermon: the recipe clearly states that it feeds 4 (FOUR) people, NOT 8. Furthermore, the steaks are 1 lb EACH, and 1.5 inches THICK. That's a lot of meat and, including the sides, both of those should easily feed 4 "normal" people. This is the problem with people in the U.S. They eat too much in the wrong proportion and don't get enough exercise....

Thursday, Jun 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

These were excellent. I think mine cooked too fast, though. I'm not going to fault Marcela or the recipe like some people do, however. My husband and I don't complain too much about food, particularly the first time we eat it. Food doesn't have to look perfect to taste good, although we do eat with our eyes first. We aren't fussy food snobs, though....

Reviewed beef tacos with salsa verde

Thursday, Jun 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this last night and it was excellent! Not only that, it was very easy to prepare. I used a jar of Frontera medium salsa verde and it gave the meat a nice little kick. I didn't make tacos because I didn't feel like buying tortillas that we don't normally use anyway. I shredded the beef in the sauce and served it like that with Marcella's spicy...

Aquaria, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. There is no need for aggressive posts in a comment section intended for reviewing recipes. This person certainly isn't the first to have a misconception and, I assure you, they won't be the last.
I'm actually shocked b/c FN refuses to post legitimate recipe reviews, then they turn around...

Reviewed grilled halibut sandwiches with chorizo mayo

Tuesday, Feb 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Food Network should really consider allowing people to add a comment without rating the recipe. Now Guy's recipe is rated 1 star because the only comment about his recipe has nothing to do with his recipe! Sissy rated it one star because she can't navigate your website, not because she's actually made Guy's recipe. Hopefully, my five star rating will...

So, you gave the recipe only 2 stars because YOU messed up and used garlic flavored oil?? Wow, I don't understand people who constantly review recipes here, mess them up royally, and then give it a bad review. Why does FN allow this?

Replied to Chocolate Fudge Cake

Saturday, Jan 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

There's your problem bfitz - the cake recipe doesn't call for powdered sugar. The frosting yes, the cake no. You stated you like the frosting, which uses powdered sugar, but that "the cake tastes sugary." Apparently, you didn't follow the recipe as written b/c it doesn't call for powdered sugar in the cake portion. So, either you are implying that...

Saturday, Jan 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is a very tasty chili, but it's HOT! I'm not going to slam Sunny, though, because I knew what was going into it and I wanted to try it. I did have to make one change based on ingredient availability - I had to use hot Italian turkey sausage b/c my market didn't have chorizo - and I intentionally reduced the cinnamon by half b/c I'm not a huge...

Friday, Dec 27, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

These were delicious, and I'm constantly surprised that FN will post reviews that give poor ratings when the reviewer did not use the correct ingredients. The recipe should not get a poor review because the person didn't follow it properly, or used the wrong ingredient. This makes no sense to me. Yet, when I've posted a review, and made changes to...

Wednesday, Aug 7, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

"I was looking forward to trying this recipe, but I didn't think it had much flavor honestly. The only thing I did differently was use a smaller roast and scaled down the proportions slightly because there are only 2 of us to feed. I absolutely love a good pork roast, but this was nothing special. A little BBQ sauce made it much more palatable t"

Sunday, Jun 30, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

"This is a good recipe, however I would like just a touch more sweetness. The result is a moist, slightly sweet cornbread that does not need butter. The only change I made was using light sour cream as that is what I had on hand, and I probably would not have noticed the difference with regular, and I didn't have honey so I used agave (could that"

Sunday, Jun 30, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

"I love Ree's show, truly. However, these beans were bland. I am really not sure what the other reviewers find so tasty about this recipe. It lacks something, and I don't think 1 1/2 tsp of salt is enough, and even with more they still lack flavor. I ended up adding a packet of Sazon tropical seasoning, more salt, and some cooked chicken breast."

Tuesday, Oct 16, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"I'm curious, why are reviews posted by people who haven't actually tried the recipe? Just because a chef puts their spin on something doesn't give a reviewer the right to criticize it for not being "authentic", especially if they haven't tried it.
Never on this episode did Kelsie say HER versions were exact replicas of the original. I do believe"
